Well this is it! My final blog, project, and day as a videographer for Stetson Marketing. I must say this has been a great journey where I’ve learned so much about the position and Stetson. I wrote often about how I was introduced to events and groups happening on the campus. Being a commuter, I only focused on my studies and never engaged in campus activities until this internship. I realized we as students have so many privileges here in the Stetson community that can lead to a great education and future careers. I’m thankful that this position was not only limited to video assignments but an exploration of opportunities here on campus. I know cultural credits are ways to introduce us to different things, but this experience also added value to my college career here.
Anyway, with that said, my one video assignment is done, and my supervisor was ok with it. It took me an entire semester to network and get it done, but I succeeded. I was glad to be given an assignment rather than coming up with ideas to cover. I found this a lot easier to focus because I knew the vision and I could work at getting things more precise than before. I had the pleasure of meeting prospective and current students, faculty, and front row seats on how events are planned. I met people I would have never willingly hung out with and understood why they enjoy their careers so much. Heck, I even faced one of my greatest fears, SNAKES!
This semester of interning was simple and tedious. I don’t think I would trade this experience for anything and if I had to do it all over again I would. I know the last two semesters working as a videographer exposed me to more activities here on campus than the previous years. It’s because of this I stepped out of my box and became aware of what and who I was around. Stetson is a community waiting to be explored and enjoyed and whomever is hired for this position next, I hope they too experience this.
